Challenge #10: Set the Scene

Being a dance teacher, I love this time of year – recital time! There is nothing more magical than a stage set for a show.  The lights, backdrops, the scenery and props – it all transforms a simple stage into another place and time.

When I played with my June kit, Garden Party, I fell in love with the clouds patterned paper (Blossom Corn Kernals) by Jillibean Soup.  I wanted to fussy cut those clouds and create a fluffy sky on a page.

Then the backside of that same paper and the Bridesmaids paper by Crate Paper made me think of hills.

And when I settled on a photo of my son holding an orange balloon, I just knew I had to create some balloons from the orange  patterned paper by the Girls’ Paperie.  The scene was set:

Challenge #10 is to Set the Scene.  Whether it’s a park with trees and a swing, a garden with rows of flowers, the ocean with splashing waves, or even something indoors, create scenery with your patterned paper and embellishments.  You can scraplift my hills and clouds, or get creative with an idea of your own.  You can do something as simple or as elaborate as you’d like.

To play along, create a layout that satisfies the challenge. You can use a Scrapbook Circle kit, or supplies in your stash.  Post your layout on your blog, in a gallery, or on our Facebook page.  Leave a comment on this post with a direct link to your layout by Wednesday evening, June 29th.  Set the scene and you could win…

An Anniversary Kit!  You know how amazing these kits are, so what are you waiting for?  Happy scrapping!
